Enter the incredible world of Alex Pardee - inhabited by a disturbing menagerie of misfit monsters and improbable superheroes plucked from the very nightmares of childhood. This newest collection expands upon his previous work, showcased in Awful Homesick, to bring us a broader picture of the extent of his twisted genius and the dark themes that run throughout his work. Yet, amongst the entrails and decapitations, the gaping maws of razor-sharp teeth, improbable appendages and suppurating fleshy masses, we discover a vein of goodness, of humanity. We see children, calling for help as they languish encased in the see-through digestive chambers of horrific monsters, as evidence of either a loss or a craving for innocence. Wide eyes stare childlike as terrifying creatures lovingly clasp and support each other, providing comfort in their search for community _ misfits in a world where only normalcy is rewarded. Prepare to be surprised!
